May 22, 2014

If you have upgraded your Windows Phone 8.0 using the developers preview program to 8.1 you’ll realize as part of the significant changes in the OS Internet Explorer had its share of the update.

The massive upgrade from the IE team is centered on these areas; quick site access, fast and fluid browsing, safety and privacy, and accessibility.

You’ll notice the ease with which you can now access a website with the upgraded frequent sites and url predictions.

The number of multi-tabs you can open has also been increased from the previous allowed six to as many as you want opened. Accessing tabs has been made very easy, having it right next to the address bar. The refresh button is also immediately available,

Internet Explorer 11 allows you to sync your browsing data across phone, tablet and PC. This includes your favorites, history, passwords and opened tabs so you can easily pick up from where you left off when you switch devices “finally say goodbye to emailing yourself links!”
